The Dragons Saga: Legend of the Oceina Dragon by J.F. Jenkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sure does leave room for another book :)
looked around all over - I'm not sure if there will be a next one :(
When I first saw this cover I wasn't expecting a YA book :) But it was - but that's ok - because it was a really good story.
Tia was chosen to be a human sacrifice for the Dragon Lord who protected all the people on her small island where she lived with her mom.
Tia didn't want to be sacrificed - but she knew that the people were depending on her.
Darien Ocina - the 7th son of the Dragon Lord himself was soon to turn 18 years old and become a man - in this big event, he has chosen Tia to be his wife - while the town (and herself) thinks she will be sacrificed - to be eaten by the dragon, the real truth comes out when he turns himself from a dragon into a human and sweeps her off to his home where they will be husband and wife for many many MANY years.
When Tia discovered she wasn't going to be eaten, but to become a wife who will breed his children, she didn't take kindly to Darien's advances. True Darien had been falling Tia since she was a child, and had fallen in love with her over the many years until they both were of age - She didn't feel the same
The book was pretty good - it was a little fast paced though . Seemed a little choppy. One event talked about something that was going to happen, next chapter, now that it's happened, it's time for the next thing - we didn't get a lot of details. I would have liked to have known more about the attack from the Inero dragons - I would have liked to have known a little more about the "meetings" that took place, maybe learn a little more about the dragon Politics that Darien is now facing -
The love story was really sweet - I love reading about how Tia slowly started to have feelings for Darien even though she tried hard not to. She couldn't tell him she loved him because she afraid.
The way Darien loved Tia was really something else. I wish there were real guys out there that loved like that outside of a book :) He is really kind, and sensitive, and really seems to genuinely care about Tia more than anything else in his life.
Darien has a lot to deal with outside of trying to get Tia to feel comfortable around him. And I can imagine the next book is going to be a LOT harder - especially with the heiarpeiahgeraoih (yes I typed that the right way, I'm not going to give away anything in this review) coming up :)
I'm sure the story will get better and better as the next books progress - I'm looking forward to seeing more the the dragon Lord and his family - because that's the ONE THING that matters the most to the Oceina's :)
